Hello and welcome to the new look bY Mi blog and website.
When I first started my textile origami business in 2008, I saw it as a learning journey and something that would morph and change as I grew and the techniques I developed found new applications. For some time now I have been doing more than just making for my Etsy/Folksy stores and craft markets and it is through these channels that some of the most interesting projects have found me. You can see some of the projects that I am most proud of in the Weddings and Projects menus above.
These projects have pushed me and the techniques I use. Sometimes I have been forced to rethink the tested methods I have developed by sourcing new materials. In other projects I have had to go back to basic paper folding technology. I have had to scale up production and logistics as well as make small one off pieces. In all of this I have thrived on the challenges and it has stimulated my creative process. This is what I want and need to be doing. This is what is exciting about textile origami. An endless list of possibilities is ahead of me and my folding studio.
